The Tunisian uprising jump-started protests throughout the Middle East. Elections scheduled for this month were postponed until October. The political reshuffling of the country's various political parties are split along Islamist and more secular lines.
Exactly one month after Tunisia ousted their long-time leader, neighboring Algeria attempted to do the same. Thousands of Algerians descended on the capital Algiers last Saturday calling for President Abdelaziz Bouteflika to step down. More protests are expected this weekend.
